Lights and tyres campaign 2020

Published on 19.11.2020

ACL has assessed the results of the campaign, noticing an alarming number of weak batteries

It’s essential for your vehicle to be in good working order and this is the reason why the annual tyre, battery and headlight checking campaign has been so successful this year. All the more so because, in these highly unusual times, drivers are aware of the importance of staying mobile and independent.

Now more than ever, the car is the preferred form of transport, not just for people living outside areas with good transport links, but also because the current health crisis requires people to be careful in terms of social distancing, which is sometimes hard to achieve on public transport.

ACL Diagnostic Center technicians were available at 11 checking stations from Bascharage to Mertert, Kayl and Wemperhardt, assisting and advising motorists. 5,279 tests were carried out across the stations, a 10.4% increase compared to 2019, showing how keen drivers are to stay safe and mobile. 3.83% of headlights tested were defective and fifty or so of the tyres tested didn’t comply with the Highway Code, but the numbers for batteries are much more alarming. Of the 1,587 batteries tested, 26% were weakly charged, seeming to reflect an ageing car stock.
